No Chiplead for Pollak, Guenan Rises to the Top

[user20283]

There's a thin line between begin chipleader or just one of the players. Guenan Flavien wasn't on our watch the entire day but due to the second to last hand of the day he emerged as our day one chipleader. In a huge pot between Flavien and Speranza he managed to double up to a massive 108,800 and we've got the details.

The board read {J-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades} when Flavien checked to Speranza who bet 3,800. Flavien made the quick call and the {9-Spades} appeared on the turn. Flavien checked again and just like on the flop Speranza decided to bet. This time the bet was 9,500 but that didn't scare Flavien who called once again.

The river was the {K-Spades} and for the third time Flavien checked to Speranza who looked over at his opponents stack and decided to put him all-in. Flavien had 37,500 chips left behind which was still more than the average stack but within second he made the call. Speranza flashed {Q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} and mucked when Flavien Guenan turned over his {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts} and raked in this massive pot.
